Manga Previews For October 2022

Featuring manga in its own column this month made sense because there were so many relevant manga in the October Previews! Most of the items on the list are BL/ yaoi. The rest are GL/ yuri with the exception of Taylor Robin’s Never Satisfied which features a non binary lead character. Never Satisfied started as a webcomic and is now in print from Seven Seas. Art in the cover image comes from Happy of the End (Denpa), My Love Mix Up (Viz), and Moon & Sun 2 (Sublime).
